Technology is everywhere! At ACT, we incorporate different forms of technology into therapy in ways that can benefit the child at home, school or in social settings. Stay tuned each quarter as we feature different apps that our staff, families and clients find useful as part of the therapeutic process. Please see below as one of our Senior Therapists shares her review of a fun, useful social story app.
Book Creator is a wonderful app that makes the creation of social stories quick and easy! Many of our clients have assisted in the creation of their own social stories using this app. This program provides book templates that can easily be customized to meet your needs. It is very easy to change fonts, colors, and layout styles. A favorite feature of this app is the ability to insert photos, videos, music, and audio to truly customize your book. We often include a video modeling component in our social stories using this application. These stories can also be shared with others via iBooks, AirDrop, Dropbox and email. This has been a wonderful tool for our families and many of them have shared video books and social stories with school staff and caretakers to promote consistency. Most importantly, kids find these books fun and interactive! Book Creator is available in the App Store for $4.99!
